I really am chuffed Rick and looking forward to going to see him.
i would be too, i'm proper nerdy about stuff like that. My mrs now (of course) wants one.
The audio guide packed up as I was in the main gallery unfortunately but all was well once I found my way to the exit through the gift-shop.
Just superb ,what an amazing coincidence ,I mean I bet he told the story to his grand kids that day as he walked round looking at all the campers that he built two and only one other exists if its not been scrapped - oh and there it is!!
Yeah, how eerie would that be?
is an lt35 the same physical size as the 50?
That a bay I can see parked on the right?
Great find those Moons. some nice old motors there too.
I don't know tbh Rick. I guess the chassis sizes would be, and it seems he only had one set of designs for the motorhome, so it may be!
Good read this ,thought that was my van there ,
Is it, do you have big norks and live in Hook? The person who sold it me did!
That woodlander history is brilliant, how cool to meet the bloke who actually built your van.
Thirded, what were the chances of that! Fantastic info and pics he's sent you.
Did you spot the bay in the woodlander build photograph? Top left picture of the LT35 chassis. on the right hand side of picture behind the car!
Ha ha not Ur one the yellow ,and if I did have big norks I wouldn't be getting out ma bed in morn
tis great to have a bit of history ,well done...
Great stuff Malc I love his "engineering drawings" he used to build it with. If it had been built in Germany it would have taken about 6 months just to produce some acceptable blueprints for the engineers in a spotless factory. He's just roughed out a quick sketch and disappeared into his shed!
Absolutely, but I have a feeling he took in a lot of detail when he visited autotrail, because his vans were identical to the autotrail apache. These days they would have sued him!
